Sia will be celebrating the holiday season with some of her closest celebrity friends this year. At least that’s the way it appears in the singer’s new star-studded music video for “Santa's Coming For Us,” the lead single from her first ever holiday album, Everyday Is Christmas.
Shared on Tuesday, the new video can be watched above, and features cheerful cameos from husband/wife Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell, soap star Susan Lucci, Stranger Things’ Caleb McLaughlin and child actors Sophia Lillis and Wyatt Oleff. Curb Your Enthusiasm’s J.B. Smoove steps into the red suit as Santa, and even Henry Winkler trades in his leather jacket for a more fitting holiday sweater vest.
The new song is just one of the 10 original holiday tunes written by Sia and Greg Kurstin for her new Christmas album. Sia fans will recognize Kurstin for his production work on the pop singer’s last three albums, having co-written a handful of songs on her 2016 This Is Acting LP, including “Bird Set Free,” "Move Your Body" and "Cheap Thrills." The latter would go on to become Sia's first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S.
“I don’t know how she comes up with song lyric and melody ideas so quickly,” Kurstin said about the singer in a recent interview. “What really blows my mind is just that she wrote these new Christmas stories, in a way, and it’s kind of amazing that she did that.”
Sia also teamed up once again with her favorite little dancer in Maddie Ziegler, who is seen on the cover of the album wearing a holiday-themed red and green wig. Everyday Is Christmas was released late last week on Nov. 16.
